Summer Mending

My favorite linen pants came out
of the laundry like this…

Perpetrated by a biscuit remnant hunting thief like this…

Who snuck unto the laundry
only to wreak havoc once again.
Yes, this is the third time….
So I coffee dyed this…

And with Deborah in mind,
I hand sewed today in the sun
and came up with this…

    Oh, I love it! Mending. Linen. Coffee dyed lace. Doesn't get any better! I love the thought of you mending in the sun with a smile on your face.

    Brilliant ! Now you have your favorite linen pants back only prettier ! I have a holy, I mean hole-y t-shirt that will be receiving some kind of similar treatment as soon as I get the sewing machine out again…
    Happy Life with all its patches ! 😉

    wow your style is exploding corinne! i've missed a lot — incidently i have one of those characters in my house — you know the kind that manages to nibble holes wherever a treat may or may not be found! loving the new blog header — i gotta go in a new direction with my blog just not sure where or if i should just write for our other one — it's so hard writing for one let alone two — p.s. you doing anything 9/17 or 9/18 — jane davies is gonna be down here for a couple w/e classes…
